Alvin’s making sure my holiday is full of love…and saliva.

Once again.

Thinking about being Mrs. Patmore for Halloween this year.

Just a warning: if you’re listening on headphones or have your volume way up, your ears will bleed from the children’s playful screaming. 

Look at this great Xmas present I got from my bestie, Jenn.

Alvin’s going to his vacation home (friends’ place in Newark, aka the family who was fostering him before I adopted him) tomorrow night. It’s gonna be weird not having him kicking me in my sleep and passing gas every five minutes for a week while I’m gone.

Two things: 1) I’ve decided that this is a thing I’m doing wrt accessories, and 2) I just paid for plane tickets and rental car arrangements, and UGH holidays are like totes expense, but at least I get to see the little ones and soak in the hot tub and kiki with Dustin.  
(Third thing: Alvin smells like…a lot right now, and I really want to give him a bath but his skin is all pit bull-sensitive, and he’s getting over a rash and irritation from an abrasion and dryness, and he just had a bath less than a week ago, so I don’t want to make it worse by subjecting his skin to that, but DAMN the smell, and he’s always touching me, so I’m not sure how long I’m going to be able to ignore it.)

Today, because I love myself, I took off from lab early, stripped down to my underwear, decided to take a day off from the gym and skip today’s park run, and made myself a bowl of cereal. 
In a few minutes, I’m going to take a nap.
Happy Valentine’s Day, no one!

I’m not sure what’s happening, and I’m a little scared because one of three things is going on right now: 
1. I have successfully avoided the New Year’s Day hangover for the first time in years.
2. The New Year’s Day hangover hasn’t started yet.
3. This year’s New Year’s Day hangover is so terrible, so unnaturally awful that I can no longer experience pain and discomfort in a way that is human.

PS

I got TWO MORE Starbucks gift cards. 

I won’t be paying for coffee for a WHILE. 

Thanks, Moore-Collins-Johnson family.

Hot tub time!

Xmas shopping.

So far, I’ve purchased gifts for 10 people (my immediate family has gotten way too big), but have only spent about 35 dollars, including packaging/giftwrap. 

I am profoundly happy with this. 

Attention Chicago!

I’m going to be in town December 19th-23rd. 

Get your time in!
